Not much nose. Looks great, sparkling amber. Clean, refreshing and good with pizza.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2004 Crystal clear amber with a large diminishing off white head. Floral aroma with notes of honey, light citrus, white bread, and a hint of pine. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. A pleasantly sweet flavor of honey and bread with light pine, red apple, and citrus notes. Refreshing, a good session beer.

Very nice beer. Strong caramel/smoky flavors that coat and linger on the palate. Easy to drink and enjoy!

This is one of those beers that I love to have on hand all the time. Nice bottle, nice label, nice beer. Has a lightly hazy copper colored body and a thick foamy cream colored head. Aroma is clean and lightly hopped with just a hint of malt. Nicely carbonated, no trace of alcohol in the palate. A little bitter, maybe spicy, has some malt and hops flavoring but not too much. This is not a terribly complex beer but it is miles ahead of average.

Bottle from Safeway, Shirley, West Midlands. Strangely flat, with no head. Copper hued, with a sweet malty aroma. Soft toffee and orange notes, but predominantly quite a dry beer. Crisp and peppery, with a long finish. Nice enough, but a little bland, beyond the dryness.

dark copper colored beer, is this a lager with high fermentation?
It's nice in taste, easy going, could replace any amber beer in Europe. Nice malts at first and long aftertaste of hopps and yeast. When you serve the beer a little warmer than lager it's even better.

I don't believe I've ever had a poorly made beer from Anchor. Apples and malt is the theme in this one. Orange colored with a hint of apples and malt in the nose. Smooth but somewhat light on the palate with the apple and malt flavors dominating. Easy drinking beer.

Deep gold. Nose is very malty, but of hops. Rather harsh flavor, has a vaguely skunked lagerish character to it. Eh.

Poured orange, very interesting. Very malty, some hops included to keep things interesting. Fruits present, apples. A very drinkable lager for, for a stout man like me.
